ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: ALTERNATOR/GENERATOR/REGULATOR

9/1/2000 - GAITHERSBURG, MD
THIS CAR HAS HAD ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS SINCE IT WAS NEW. IT HAS BEEN IN FOR REPEAT REPAIRS SINCE UNDER WARRANTY. NOW THAT THE WARRANTY IS OVER, GM HAS TAKEN THE POSITION THAT THEY WILL NOT HELP IN THE REPAIRS OF THIS CAR. WHAT HAPPEN TO APPLIED WARRANTIES ON REPAIRS TO CARS. THEY ARE REFUSING TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITS WITH THIS CARS FAILURES. I WAS INFORMED BY A DEALERS SERVICE MANAGER, THAT GM KNOWS ABOUT THE PLACEMENT OF THE CAR'S ALTERNATOR ON THE ENGINE AND IT CAUSED SO MANY PROBLEMS THAT GM HAS SINCE RELOCATED THE ALTERNATOR ON LATER MODELS AND THAT SEEMS TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM WITH HAVING TO REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR. IN NOVEMBER 1999, I PAID TO HAVE A PCM REPLACED AND THE TECHNICIAN FORGOT TO REPLACE THE NO KNOCK MODULE IN THE PCM. THIS CAUSED THE CARS SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT TO COME ON AND THE CAR HAD TO BE TAKEN BACK FOR REPAIR AGAIN. THIS MISTAKE CAUSED ME TO GO OUT AND BUY ANOTHER CAR. (TOYOTA).
